http://tasvideos.org/778M.html Double Dragon 2 improved by over 30 seconds from greater precision, new shortcuts, and the use of Mode B (which allows the players to hit each other). Like in the previous run, the author controls two characters at once. This movie shows the true value of teamwork. Despite sibling rivalry, Billy and Jimmy help expedite their common goal with well-timed knees to each other's faces. Topics: Double Dragon, TAS, adelikat
For more information, see http://tasvideos.org/1990M.html Zanac is one of those space shooter games in which you are trying to save the earth. Due to the highly repetitive nature of this game, the hidden 9th input button (the console's Reset button) is used to enable stage select to warp to the final (12th) level. This results in an unusually long gray screen at the start of the movie. Starting on the final level with 3 lives and only the initial pea-shooter for a weapon normally makes the game...

http://tasvideos.org/272M.html It's a 38 minute long movie that provides an excellent opportunity to shut your brain off and wander mentally somewhere else. While the game is primarily an auto-scroller, the author attempts to finish the game as fast as possible with fast boss fights, and of course level warping. Aside from that, he tries to provide as much variety as possible and show off all the interesting weapons this game has.

New Super Mario Bros. was released in 2006 for the Nintendo DS. It features your typical side-scrolling plumber, but in this case he comes with enhanced abilities, like wall jumping and doing flips. Here, Mario beats Luigi's old record by 3:18.46, due largely to the use of a new version of the emulator which doesn't lag on the map screens as well as various in-stage improvements.
